constituencies that could alter the situation, particularly in florida. we're going to start with latinos here. we've got two recent polls that show a conflicting picture on who latinos in florida support for president. a miami herald florida international university poll shows obama beating romney by seven points. but a tampa bay times miami herald poll shows romney up by two points. so you're a member of romney's hispanic steering committee. what are you seeing on the ground as far as latino vote goes? >> the latino community has been hit really, really hard by this recession. if you look at, for example, children in poverty, the largest group of children in poverty are the hispanic latino children in the united states. poverty has increased among latinos. unemployment, frankly, is excessively high. there are no jobs. really in the entire country, and that also stands true for florida. so, when all the rhetoric is said and done, the question is, are -- do our grandchildren and our children deserve this? is this the best the united states can be? or do they deserve, and frankly do we deserve,
talk about research and p.o.s. does the polling for one sub-group, latinos -- >> so you're the conspirators on the left wing of the polling. >> barack obama is ahead by 50 points with latinos. the question is, their enthusiasm was less than 2008. that is another aspect. >> my thinking had been, while it was mathematically possible for romney to get the electoral votes without ohio, michigan, pennsylvania, that was like a three or four-cushion shot in pool. is ohio what we should be looking at more than anything else? >> that is a good question. it is much easier for mitt romney to win the presidency if he wins ohio. i entered this election cycle believing that there were three key states instead of just florida and ohio. i would add virginia to that list. the next half level down is north carolina. clearly, governor romney is stronger in florida and virginia. those are very competitive states right now. all i know is someplace where he does need a significant comeback. fred's points are well-taken. for a lot of voters, the election started last night. if he is going to h

-american thing but immigration. we tend to think about this immigration question as purely a latino question. it's not just for latinos, but it's for africans of can descent who are here and also having problems. >> anthea, i want to show you this commercial that's running that's intended to draw a wedge between african-americans and the latinos. >> i'm tired of the staur owe types that african-americans doan want to work. i god laid off and i've got mouths to feed. i need a job. what i doens understand is why they're going to immigrant millions of workers when 3 million black americans can't find work. do they really believe black americans don't want to work? let's slow down mass immigration and save jobs for americans, paid for by numbersusa.org. this is not a romney ad or obama hand but that's basically a jes jesse ad. >> i think that it's important that americans not be persuaded by this ad or fall into this trap. it's very interesting that the ad would say the reason why african-americans don't have jobs is because of immigrants instead of talking about our educational system, instead of t

in colorado where last night's debate was held is latinos. they're more optimistic about the economy than nonlatino white voters. still, six in ten latinos say the economy is in poor shape. a separate poll found a majority of latinos think the economy is a more important issue than immigration. so no doubt the latino vote will be key. coming up this weekend, soledad o'brien follows two people in nevada who are trying to tip the scales in their party's favor. watch "latino in america: courting their vote." that is sunday at 8:00 p.m. >> interesting. >>> 43 minutes after the hour. confusion about early voting in the tampa area. the election supervisor says a call from organizing for america, a democratic community organizing group, prompted hundreds of phone calls about early voting. the call was actually about filling out absentee ballots at election offices. early voting, which is different, doesn't start until the 27th in florida. >>> issue number one in america, jobs. who has them and who can create them? cnn fact checking both candidates' claims about the job market. that's coming up f
